On Sunday 21st July the eighth edition of the Frome Half Marathon took place. This saw the same famous course offering runners a big city race experience in the beautiful town of Frome and surrounding villages.

A single 13.1 mile loop took runners from Frome Town Football Club through residential areas before they headed up through the town centre. Countryside lanes offered tranquil scenes as they continued out to the idyllic Nunney village, before heading back into Frome Town Centre and through to the football club finish line.

The Frome 10K which took place on the same day was a single 10K loop from Frome Town Football Club through two residential areas and the town centre before finishing at the football club.

It all started in Nailsworth with the Nelly,  the fields of joy, to Avening and back. Followed by the the Sizzler, in mid July which took runners to the top of one of the great Cotswold Hills with views across to Wales. Finally, Cranham Beast 10k.

This wasn’t that difficult to figure out this week.

Trailmania was a series of 3 trail runs, for all ages and abilities, in around the beautiful heart of the Cotswolds, with views, hills, woodland trails & winding footpaths full of flora and fauna.

Nadine Brown completed the 3 events coming 8th place overall and 1st Senior Lady. A great effort from you Nadine well done.

And then we have Rochelle Ravenscroft completing a staggering 80.778 miles in 24 hours. An event like this is a real test of not just physical fitness but mental strength all of which Rochelle clearly has plenty of. A fantastic achievement Rochelle well done.
